"We fear that the five decapitated bodies found near Kaduvela in Avissawela may belong to Tamil civilians who have been arrested during searches and disappeared from Colombo," said Leader of Upcountry Peoples Front (UPF) and parliamentarian P.Chandrasekaran in a letter sent to Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapakse Thursday, sources in Colombo said.

Five headless male corpses were found in Puwakpitiya and Dehiowita in Avissawella police division Thursday morning. A senior police officer in the division said the victims, believed to be Tamil youths, have been brutally murdered and their headless bodies were spotted by the estate workers in the area and informed the police.

The bodies were only partially clothed, belonged to males, and have serious cut injuries to the bodies, sources in Avissawela said.

Several travellers coming from Trincomalee to Colombo also have been arrested and disppeared, Chandrasekaran said.
